‘omega’ for arflex japan, is the result of japanese designer hironao tsuboi’s desire to produce a precisely crafted chair. its gossamer robe-like belt seamlessly extends through the backrest, armrests and legs, giving it an elegant stance. the entire piece is elaborately made in fine details by using traditonal japanese techniques and methods by carefully sculpting each section by hand. with this, the form is created three-dimensionally from individual solid slabs of wood. the chair comes in three different variations including: natural oak, dark oak and black walnut. hironao tsuboi: omega for arflex japan ‘omega’ shown in natural oak image © nozomu matsunaga
